Following the events at the capitol building on January 6th, hundreds of articles started flooding out about domestic terrorism in the US. The main focus of these articles specifically were to highlight domestic terror perpetrated by White far-right individuals.
Articles with headlines like “Can US Spy Agencies Stop White Terror?” and “White Supremacist Extremists are the Nation’s Deadliest Terror Threat” are meant to convince Americans of something that – according to all available government data – is statistically false.
We taken the time to dig deep into all available statistics, multi-variant scientific analyses, and singular data points to show the reader that this popular narrative isn’t even close to being reality, and only meant to demonize a portion of the American population the system fears.
The Statistical Reality of Domestic Extremist Attacks
The narrative that domestic terror attacks by right-wing’ white Americans are more likely to occur than Islamic terror attacks, is extremely misleading.
In 2017, California State Senate Leader Kevin de León called for hearings on what his office described as the rise of the white supremacist movement. During this Hearing De’ Leon claimed that “Radical right-wing terrorism is on the rise in our great country. And since 2008, terrorist attacks on the U.S. soil carried out by right-wing extremist groups, including white supremacists, outnumber those by Islamic jihadists by two to one. That is a statistical fact.”
Politifact subsequently fact-checked his claim, but didn’t rate it because if they were to, it would certainly result in a ‘pants on fire’ rating. Here are the facts:
Reveal reported finding 115, tied to ‘right-wing extremists’ compared with terror “incidents” tied to ‘Islamist groups’ from January 2008 through the end of 2016.
According to a widely shared GAO report, 85 deadly attacks in the United States were carried out by violent extremists resulting in 225 deaths. More people died during attacks connected with Islamic jihadists.
Of those 225 deaths by extremists:
• 106 individuals were killed by far-right violent extremists in 62 separate incidents;
• 119 individuals were killed by radical Islamist violent extremists in 23 separate incidents
The full context is what most of the media leaves out: Muslims of all ages living in the U.S. in 2017, made up about 1.1% of the total U.S. population. White Americans make up approximately 62% of the total U.S. population.
If we put this into context, Muslims in America are more than 20 times more likely to commit an extremist attack than white Americans per 100,000, based on these numbers since the 9/11 attacks have occurred. Muslims in the U.S. are also approximately 60 times more likely than white Americans to commit an extremist murder.
But are the GAO numbers even accurate? The source in question is a 2017 Government Accountability Office study titled “Countering Violent Extremism.” The study is flimsy at best on what constitutes a right-wing terrorist attack. On page 29 of the study for example, describes one of the attacks as “ A White Supremacist member of Aryan Brotherhood killed a man.” There is no detail as to the motive or the race of the victim. According to the study, that same person also killed someone else in later weeks, and this was counted as a separate “terrorist attack” by the GAO.
On page 31, they document that a “Far rightist murdered a homeless man” and counted this as a right-wing terror attack as well. On page 32 they describe a “White supremacist who shot and killed 9 at his community college.” That shooting was the 2015 Umpqua Community College shooting, carried out by a self-described “mixed race” individual who singled out Christians for his attack. On page 30, the study lists a case where six white supremacist inmates beat another prisoner to death. According to the report, this attack occurred while the men were in prison, and was counted as a ‘right-wing terrorist’ attack.
Did this reality stop author Don Winslow from posting a twitter video claiming that President Trump is going to lead an army of ‘White supremacist terrorists’ into a civil war?
Did Winslow even take the time to review any government data or scientific studies to find out if what his video – which has garnered millions of views – is in any way based in reality?
Of course not.
Winslow, and hundreds of other self described journalists only care about perception. The goal of videos like his, and the hundreds of articles published by top media outlets recently, is to change the perception of reality for as many Americans as they can using propaganda.
Propaganda and scientifically incorrect misinformation is allowed by social media platforms, so long as it aligns with the official narrative of the system.

Hate Crime and Hate Groups
The national media often fails to mention that black Americans are vastly overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes—by 50 percent—according to recent Justice Department data from 2017; whites are underrepresented by 24 percent. It also doesn’t appear to matter which year we look at in regards to hate crimes, as the below results are fairly consistent.
Additionally, black Americans commit hate crimes at a rate that is three times higher than whites per 100,000 according to FBI crime data from 2016 and 2017. All of this data available, and yet the numerous congressional hearings on “White Nationalism” may have made you believe otherwise.
Black Americans are also more than twice as likely to be in a hate group than white Americans, according to the SPLC’s own data.
Hate Attacks and Domestic Terrorism
Black nationalists are also vastly more likely to commit an attack than white nationalists are. There are countless anecdotal examples that the national media chooses not to cover widely, but this objective truth is also backed up by all available data we have.
Some of these examples are as follows:
Kori Ali Muhammad mortally wounded three white males during a targeted shooting spree in Fresno, California, on April 18, 2017. According to his social media posts, Muhammad expressed a strong dislike toward “white people” as well as government officials. He made reference to “a race war against whites,” the evils of “white devils” and being a “black soldier.”
David N. Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50 killed six people in Jersey City, targeting a kosher Jewish market. Authorities also suspected that the two assailants may have been involved in a separate killing in neighboring Bayonne, N.J., according to New Jersey’s attorney general, Gurbir S. Grewal.
Micah Xavier Johnson, who killed five police officers in Dallas, was increasingly drawn to black nationalist ideology and attended several meetings of the People’s New Black Panther Party.
Gavin Eugene Long, who killed three officers in Baton Rouge, said he belonged to the Washitaw Nation, an obscure black nationalist group that claims ownership to the huge swath of the United States obtained in the Louisiana Purchase on the belief that they are descended from a U.S. indigenous group.
According to the department of homeland security, from 2015 through 209, black Americans are over-represented by 19.4% in domestic extremist attacks, while white Americans are under-represented by 32% in domestic extremist attacks.
Black Americans make up only 13% of the American population, yet made up over 32% of the domestic extremist attacks from 2015 to 2019. White Americans make up 62% of the population, yet during the same time period accounted for 29% of the domestic extremist attacks.
Data shows white Americans are far more often victims of interracial crime than black Americans. In 2018, The Bureau of Justice Statistics released their survey of criminal victimization, breaking down 593,598 interracial violence between blacks and whites. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent.
This information directly contradicts the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, then President Obama’s DOJ recorded that black Americans committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; white Americans only committed 15 percent.
Furthermore, despite making up only 13.4% of the American population, black Americans commit more than double the amount of interracial homicides on white Americans, who make up 60.4% of the American population.
Here are a few examples of the media cherry-picking less than 10% of stories regarding interracial crime, and representing it as the majority – while also completely ignoring the legitimate statistical majority of interracial assaults.
Emmanuel Aranda threw a five-year-old white child over a balcony in Minnesota. This story only received around 2% of national coverage that the Nia Wilson murder received. Other examples with very limited media coverage include a story about 18 year old Dominique Lang who shot a white baby in the face for the fun of it while attempting to rob his mother, Cadesha Michelle Bishop who was arrested for the murder of an elderly white man, after she pushed the seventy-four-year-old to his death on the bus. Other notable occurrences include the black man who NYPD arrested for committing random hate attacks against white people, the black man who told everyone that he wanted to “kill all white people,” and then proceeded to kill 6 white people, and the Fresno man who admitted he wanted to kill as many white people as possible during a confession to his crimes. The Fresno spree killing was not only majorly ignored by the media, but hundreds of black Americans praised his actions on social media.
One of the most recent examples would be the man in Spring Texas who was viciously beaten by a group of black teens at the Exxon convenience store in Harris County. One man shouted ‘Black Lives Matter,’ while kicking him in the face, following the horrendous attack.
Here are just a few recent video examples, just since the death of George Floyd:
ATTACK #1 – GROUP OF BLACKS ATTACK MAN IN SPRING TEXAS, ONE YELLS ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER.’
ATTACK #2 – GROUP OF BLACKS ATTACK HUSBAND AND WIFE ATTEMPTING TO DEFEND THEIR STORE AGAINST LOOTERS.
ATTACK #3 – GROUP OF BLACK TEENS MOB MAN ATTEMPTING TO CALL POLICE ON LOOTERS NEAR A STORE
ATTACK #4 – BLACK MAN BEATS MACY’S EMPLOYEE HORRIFICALLY. IT WAS ORIGINALLY REPORTED THAT THE MAN USED A RACIAL SLUR, BUT THEN DEEMED UNPROVOKED.
ATTACK #5 – BLACK MAN RELENTLESSLY BEATS ELDERLY WHITE MAN IN GROCERY STORE
ATTACK #6 – WHITE MAN BEATEN BY MOB OF BLACK RIOTERS
ATTACK #7 – GROUP OF BLACK TEENS GANG UP ON WHITE TEEN AT RECENT PROTES
ATTACK #8 – GROUP OF BLACK MEN MOB A WHITE MAN ATTEMPTING TO DEFEND HIS STORE
Attacks Against Asian Americans Since Outbreak of COVID-19
During the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, there were countless headlines being published regarding Anti-Asian attacks, implying that these were in retaliation for the spread of the virus in America. Some media outlets blamed President Trump’s rhetoric, claiming without evidence that the rise in Anti-Asian biased incidents was fueled by President Trump referring to COVID-19 as the ‘Chinese Virus.’ Others implied that the perpetrators of these attacks were white Americans.
Outside of the fact that almost every media outlet also used the ‘Chinese virus’ label to describe COVID-19 on numerous occasions, numbers show that the perpetrators of these incidents do not fit the demographic of typical Trump supporters, and definitely weren’t white.
In a list compiled of all of the attacks on Asians in the US where the offender was known and reported, most of the perpetrators of the crimes were black Americans. The most vicious attack of them all, a mass stabbing of an Asian family at a Sam’s Club supermarket, was carried out by a Hispanic man.
Attacks Against Jewish Americans
The black hate crime perpetrator is especially prominent in anti-Jewish attacks, specifically in New York City. Can yo count the number of times the top three-letter national media outlets reported on these sorts of attacks versus other attacks?
New York Police Department statistics for the first three quarters of 2019 document 45 arrests for anti-Jewish hate crimes in New York City. One third of those arrested were African-Americans, while only making up 24% of the population of the city.
Here are just a few fairly recent video examples:
ATTACK #1 – BLACK ON JEW
ATTACK # 2 BLACK ON JEW
ATTACK #3 BLACK ON JEW
ATTACK #4 BLACK TEENS ON JEW KID
ATTACK #5 BLACK TEENS ON JEW
ATTACK #6 BLACK TEENS ON JEWISH TEENS
ATTACK #7 BLACK WOMAN ON JEWISH MAN
ATTACK #8 BLACK WOMAN ON JEWISH KID
ATTACKS # 9 JEWS AND BLACKS BRAWL IN LAKEWOOD
ATTACK # 10 BLACK ON JEW IN BROOKLYN

This morning, as my father in law was walking in Rochester Park in Crown Heights, he was attacked with a deadly weapon. This is absolutely frightening, and obviously something that a civilization should never tolerate. May Hashem protect us, and we should only share good news. https://t.co/ZEYjk92Fms

Recent Anti-White Sentiments in Media, Television, and other Institutions
The Washington Post’s opinions editor was recently accused of inciting violence for tweeting that white women are ‘lucky’ black people are ‘just calling them Karens and not calling for revenge’. Karen Attiah posted the tweet on Sunday, saying: ‘The lies and tears of white women hath wrought; the 1921 Tulsa massacre, murder of Emmett Till, exclusion of black women from feminist movements, 53% of white women voting for Trump. ‘White women are lucky that we are just calling them Karens. And not calling for revenge.’ Later, in her comments section, she doubled down on the remark, saying: ‘I’m just saying. Be happy we are calling for equality. And not actual revenge.’
Nikole Hannah-Jones, the lead essayist on New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project, wrote a letter to the editor in Notre Dame’s The Observer stating that “the white race” are barbaric devile, and the the biggest murderer, rapist, of the modern world.”
Munroe Bergdorf, a British model who came to public attention in August 2017, stated that all white people are “the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth.” She was originally fired for the comments, but then rehired after the death of George Floyd.
Many black college professors and black college students feel very comfortable expressing anti-white sentiments in and out of the classroom. Here is a compilation that was put together in 2017, which includes many white professors, but also many black college students and black professors.
